The Green Connection – Kota Kinabalu

Was thinking to go to the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park this morning, but the weather didn’t play nice.  So instead of taking risk of getting wet (I’m more concern of my camera) while on the 1.4KM trail, I headed to The Green Connection.  Entrance fee is RM15.  While it’s a nice place to check out, it definitely needs more fund for maintenance (what is our government doing? Sleeping??). The cafe is closed, the aquarium water is dirty, workers sitting there chit-chatting…

I was the only visitor when I went there just now. Then another two Western tourists arrived just before I left.  A couple of Western professors work there taking care of the marine lives, which is good.

  1. What lovely pictures! All very beautiful!


  2. These photos are beautiful. How did you take this? Do you have a polarizer? I'm trying to take photos from aquarium but the photo effect turn out bad due to strong reflection.

  3. teca, Thanks for your comment. It's very encouraging. :)

    Lee Chu, Thanks. My polarizer never came off from the lens, but I don't think it helps much on a reflection glass. I just moved around until I get the best angle with less reflection. Then, "Auto-Levels" adjustment in Photoshop. :)
